What is it?
The ISDRA Subgroup operates under the authority of the California Desert District Desert Advisory Council (DAC) and provides input to the BLM regarding issues pertinent to the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. This metamorphosis of the dunes' former Technical Review Team (TRT) to a Subgroup is more in line with federal regulations and complies with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), which governs such arrangements.
Who is it?
Members of the Subgroup applied to the El Centro Field Office Manager for consideration, who then made selections and submitted them to the DAC for review and approval. Those selected must provide expertise in:
- California OHV interests
- Arizona OHV interests
- OHV organizations
- Imperial County
- Local Community
The group will consist of 7-9 members, with at least one member from the DAC.
When is it?
With a projected three (3) meetings a year (pre-season, mid-season and post-season), and public participation encouraged, the Subgroup should continue to provide to the BLM collaboration and advice on dunes related issues.
